Individual Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) – SRW/F-350 DRW only

So, appears it does come on the dually now as standard equipment

Went by a dealer today, they had a dually I could look at, said yes it is standard and there was no way to turn it off even though it is above the GVWR limit.

I suspect if you were able to turn off the TPMS. It would have to be done via the BCM/PCM with the Ford VCMII and IDS. The 2011 thru 2016 have an option to turn on/off the TPMS since the same module is on both SRW and DRW. The TPMS is allow programmable for the tire pressure thresholds.

I have had duallies for decades. Flats on inboard tires that are undetectable when not loaded have damaged 4 trucks and caused replacement of tires where there was no damge to vehicle on twice that many more. I think dually TPMS is more useful than it is ever has been on a SRW truck.
TPMS is aggravating when tires already having borderline low pressure end up triggering warnings on that first cold morning.

Yes, indeed, why? Although I am not doubting someone's reason for the delete. I just want to learn from others. He must have a reason for wanting to not have a dually TPMS. And it may be a great reason or a not so great reason. Still, any reason is worth hearing.

The main reason is, if it is not mandated to have it then I don't want it and I don't need it, it is something else to have an issue with and with the jobs I've had, you get in the routine of checking the vehicle, I've only had 3 tires catch me off guard in 20 years. Actually it would not bother me so much if they had two settings for the rear, loaded and unloaded but I know that makes sense and ford won't do it.
